A Prelude to Valentine’s Day   10 comments



A rose dropped into the water

drifts southward in the current

to a place of dreams and memories


There’s always something here

Holding you to me,

Nothing I can touch or hear

Nothing I can see.


It comes from somewhere deep inside

Where tender memories start

And feelings such as these abide

That bridge the mind and heart.


It’s like you’ve always been there,

Your love will never leave,

A scent of rose in salty air

And lace upon your sleeve.
